The Gujarat Government on Tuesday announced Rs. 10 lakh to each of the families of those people from Gujarat who had lost their lives in Monday’s attack in Anantnag and Rs. 2 lakh to the families of those injured.
“People from Gujarat who have lost lives will get Rs 10 lakh each from the Gujarat Government, injured to be given Rs 2 lakh,” Chief Minister Rupani said.
Rupani also thanked the bus driver, who put his life at stake, but drove the bus to a safer place in order to safeguard other passengers.
“I thank the bus driver. He drove the bus for around two kilometers in order to make people reach a safe place,” he said.
“We will suggest his name for the bravery award,” he added.
